Wayne “Led” Sorbelli’s Led Zep Tribute Show “Rock & Roll” on electric ukuleles Key West Theater 7/31/21

‘Twas a beautiful July 31st evening, 2021 at the Key West Theater benefiting Nicky’s Celebration (a local non-profit helping local families fight pediatric cancer).  

Me and my very recently assembled Wayne “Led” Sorbelli’s Tribute to Led Zeppelin Show band consisting of 12 of the loveliest, hardest working musicians I know, rotating duties as their personal and professional schedules provided, worked up 12 of Zep’s greatest hits for the event.

I am very proud of everyone I worked with and the results. Look at song credits for a list of a names of my friends/players/cancer fighters/cancer survivors/and those like myself who had lost someone very close to them via cancer.  We assembled and kicked cancers ass on that night.  We raised peace signs, fists, hope, and many screaming testimony’s!!!  

No better way to start something like this than to come out of the gate shooting from the hip with my little electric ukulele – it’s the smallest thing I play but makes ME feel way way bigger than I am – so it empowers me on stage – funny? – I guess – but it’s the truth.  So I felt like a giant on stage playing a pretty easy guitar song (that’s a joke) on a little ukulele with a guitar pickup installed in it .   It was a way to empower me and set the theme for the night’s comings – we were going to kick cancer in the balls on this night like giants.  Like the Hammer of the Gods!!!! (But in our own Key West kind of quarkie weird little island way)

I took a walk to a secluded beach while writing a song i’ve been calling “The Lemon Family Tree” and then played it while sitting in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s about making the best with what you’ve got – you know the classic lemons into lemonade – or my metaphor of bagging cow pellets & selling as fertilizer lol

Lyrics :

  • We all know, the story of Family Lemon
  • Made their fortune, with drinks, stands and sellin’
  • they Didn’t sit around cryin, bout what Santa didn’t bring

jammin

  • If life Hands you, a pile of cow pellets
  • bag it up man, bag it up and sell it
  • somewhere right now, someone’s got a garden to grow

jammin

repeat
